How Many Versions of 'A Christmas Carol' Are There?

It’s officially Christmas season and that definitely means watching so many versions of A Christmas Carol that you’ll lose count!

The visual adaptions, based on the 1843 novella by Charles Dickens, started just after the 1900s on the stage, and had even more public readings and radio adaptions on top of that!

So, how many versions are there total? 135!

The most famous ones that you’ll see on TV this season are Mickey’s Christmas Carol from 1983, the George C. Scott version (1984), Scrooge (1951), and Disney’s A Christmas Carol — which stars Jim Carrey as not only Scrooge, but the three ghosts as well.
